    The OEM charging cord which comes with the Prime has three indicator lights. Their functions are explained in the owners manual:

    I do not know which light on your device is flashing, but the most likely problem is a ground fault because of the electrical outlet which you're plugged into. The Prime's charging cable's ground fault detection needs to see the same amount of current flowing into and out of the charging cable and also a ground ("earth") connection to the third contact pin.

    It could also be due to a poor connection where dirt, corrosion or mechanical damage to the plug or outlet cause electrical resistance which results in enough heat to activate the thermal protection in the plug.

    Have you tried plugging into a different outlet on a different circuit?

    Are you able to charge your Prime from a public L2 charging station?

    This should let you identify whether the problem is with your outlet, the charging cable, or the vehicle.

    I just bought a 2020 Prius PHV LE. I can confirm that the OEM 110 charging cable from Toyota will take 240v (dryer outlet). I'm using it now.

    My 2018 Prime OEM 110 charging cable from Toyota will take 240v as well.
